Agatha Christie had a successful cinematic run this year thanks to the success of Murder on the Orient Express, and another of her works is also available as Crooked House hits Blu-ray and DVD January 16.

The tale centers on Charles Hayward (Max Irons), a former spy turned private detective who investigates the death of a wealthy patriarch. Family secrets abound during his investigation as Hayward digs deeper into the lives of a theater actress (Gillian Anderson), the patriarch’s widow (Christina Hendricks) and the family’s matriarch (Glenn Close). Directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, the script was penned by Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park).

Blu-ray extras include three featurettes (Agatha Christie: A Timeless Fascination, Whodunnit? - The Characters of Crooked House, and Elegance & Innovation: The Design of Crooked House). The DVD comes with the two featurettes (the Agatha Christie segment is a Blu-ray exclusive).
